As you all know, Periyava had talked extensively about this mahan. I have already posted Periyva’s speech on Him in our “Audio Content” section. Periyava had highlighted the supreme Shiva bakthi this mahan had that resulted in several outstanding works – more importantly He talked about “Unmatha Panchakam”. Please read this article to learn more about this mahan. I know that this is a little longer article – please don’t give-up. It is such a treasure to read. We all know that Sri Rudram is a powerful vedic chant. This story will magnify the importance of it and also the shiva nama mahima. Simply astonishing incidents….If you think that this mahan is a shiva baktha only, you’re wrong – in this divya charithram, you will read about his devotion to Lord Vishnu and how Vishnu blessed him and also ended up writing stuthis on Lord Ranganathar…..
I have taken notes on several slokas and other work done by Dikshitar – need to find them…
- சிவார்க்கமணி தீபிகா
- சிவார்ச்சன சந்த்ரிகா
Of all these, I am more interested in the last one as in that He has elaborated how to do nithya Siva puja to help that king….

Excellent piece of info Mahesh. Lovely.
Mr Mahesh, an excellent input. I am extremely thankful to you for such an
Sir – The information you provide after researching our spiritual treasures with particular reference to our Prathyaksha Deivam Mahaperiyaval, is really mindboggling. At times I feel ashamed that we here in Chennai do not take any efforts to collect information on the spiritual acitivities taking place like celebrations of Jayanthi/Aradhanas etc., whereas though you are more than 30,000 Kms away and you provide us the detail. As I wrote in one of my earlier comments, may our Lord Mahaperiyaval bless you with all prosperities in life to carry on with this extraordinary service without any hindrance.
